Troop Spotlight: August 2022


Girl Scouts around our council are always active – camping, traveling, doing service projects, and making the world a better place. Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains invites all Girl Scouts in our council to share photos of their adventures, achievements, projects, and more. Send your photos to us at Be sure to include a description of the event, your troop number and levels involved, when it took place, and any other relevant information.

Dream Girl Scout Day

Girl Scout Troop 58302 from Pelham, NH were the lucky winners of the Dream Girl Scout Day as part of renewal incentives offered by the council last September. The Junior Girl Scouts brainstormed and decided they want to do an overnight with the chance to earn the Animal Habitats badge. The council arranged a visit to Wildlife Encounters, where they met several wild animals. They also worked on badge requirements, including making animal puppets at their overnight visit to Camp Seawood. It was a great weekend for all!

Renew by the end of September this year for a chance to be entered into this year’s Dream Girl Scout experience, a VIP trip to our Girl Expo!

Girl Scouts on a sea cruise

Waterbury troop looks back on a great year

Girl Scout Troop 30228 of Waterbury, VT, had a few things going on towards the end of their troop year. In addition to donations to local nonprofits, the multilevel troop used some of their cookie proceeds to take a trip to the Escape Room in Williston in preparation for the Junior Detective badge and pamper themselves with a spa day before heading to Jay Peak Pumphouse (no picture, they were having too much fun!).

The troop also attended the Lake Monsters baseball game on June 12 with other Girl Scouts. They had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the end of the game fireworks!

Finally, some of the girls got together over the summer and participated in the Montpelier July 4th Parade. The theme was Hope. Our rainbow cloud represented Girl Scouts and inclusivity for the future! Attendees of the parade were able to vote for floats and the troop won second place!

Busy Morristown troop wraps up season

Troop 60278 of Morrisville, VT, had an active year, including camping, making luminaries for the Lace Up for Cancer walk, and bridging.

Recycled cookie boxes help animals

Girl Scout Troop 30228 of Waterbury, VT, spent the spring and summer making a few things for the animals at Central Vermont Humane Society. The girls decided to recycle their empty cookie boxes and make cat scratchers. They also tie dyed bandanas for dogs and made some felt chew toys as well. After completing these projects, Girl Scouts Eleanor and Lila dropped off the donations to represent their troop. They are shown here with the co-director of the Humane Society, Laurie Garrison. Separately, Lila, with her friend Vivienne (not pictured) sold brownies, bracelets, and drawings to classmates at her school and raised $80 for the Humane Society./p>
